A Stab in the Wool
Needle Felted decorative items and pictures
A year ago I bought a needle felting kit from a well known high street craft shop and I was immediately hooked.
All of sudden I am surrounded by little felted friends and running out of space. Friends and family started to take them off my hands and soon I was getting asked if I could make more. Realising that there was a market for my products A Stab in the Wool was born.
Needle Felting is now a big part of my life. I attend a few markets/craft fairs throughout the year plus I am also passing on my love for this craft running workshops are in East Yorkshire and from The Old Forge Florists at Uncle Henrys, Grayingham.
for five years in fashion and textile design, years ago, and not pursuing it as
a career, I have decided to revisit the skills I loved, before I am too old to
see a needle :)
The clothing, and pet accessory are designed and handcrafted by me, the fabrics are 'quality fabrics' including cotton, linen, wool, viscose and muslin blends to help your baby to 'look cool and stay cool.' There will be new outfits and items added often, check back regularly. If you have specific questions/wants, please

Curly Nook Jewellery
Several years ago I found a pattern for a necklace and bracelet set in a magazine and decided to give it a go. After making a few pieces for myself and family an old friend from art college, who was already attending craft fairs Suggested I join her at a few events to see how I got on, I enjoyed every minute and you can now find me out and about at fairs most weekends from early February until Christmas Day.
I make a selection of fashion jewellery ranging from earrings at £2 a pair through to chain maille sets at prices to suit most pockets. Alongside the jewellery I make other beaded items including bookmarks, scarf rings and brooches.
The name Curly Nook came from the cottage where my mother lived as a child in a local Lincolnshire village.
I look forward to meeting customers old and new.
Eleanor Rogerson Enamel and Copper
I make copper and enamelled copper items such as bowls, tealight holders, jewellery and wall hangings from my home in North Lincolnshire. Most start as sheet copper which I cut and shape before either leaving as copper or moving on to adding vitreous enamel.

The man from Skidby
Hi. I am a chainsaw carver and my name is John Pattison, also known as The Man From Skidby.
I have been a full time Carver for 7years. I carve many things from owls, bears, people's dogs, to male and female figures.
I was taught to carve with hammer and chisel when I was sixteen but it wasn't until I was sixty that I started carving with chainsaws.
I do a few events and markets and I also do the Linclonshire Show with four other carvers.
Last year, I did 38 sculptures for a large holiday leisure Parks company, that is at the Centre of things but I am not allowed to name them.
Some of my carvings can be seen and bought from Sarah Cranmer at Toffs, The Old Forge Florists, Uncle Henry's, Grayingham.
